Joe Allen, left, and Lee Odgers from Freedom 55 Financial in Nanaimo wrap sandwiches as part of a United Way Day of Caring in late March at the 7-10 Club.

Volunteers from Freedom 55 woke up early to make and serve breakfast, as well as prepare and distribute packed lunches to people in need who go to the 7-10 Club.

A Day of Caring can be organized at any time of the year. Anyone interested in co-ordinating a Day of Caring can contact the United Way offices at 250-591-8731, info@uwcnvi.ca or www.uwcnvi.ca.
